little winter accident

i have had plenty are cars, and learned to drive in the pa snow, but last night i was lucky enough to finally bite it, of course it had to be the first car i have ever owned that was newerish

ended up sliding down an icy hill at 2 am, I pulled the ebrake to try to catch the main road at the intersection but ended up across the road and caught a tree stump

started repairing today though,







im going to try to pull it out, but i imagine i will need to cut out and replace the pillar, and rocker all the way to the wheel well, its not such a big deal because i bought the car totaled in the front end, and was able to fix that.

Did you just hold liability insurance on your 6? Glad you are ok, that is always the most important thing. Cars can be replaced or repaired. Looks like it was a pretty hard knock, glad it hit behind your door. Is it still driveable, and if so, how does it drive?

Has this car been in an accident before? I noticed the facelifted bumper but you have the 03-05 sedan head lights.

spot on, i bought the car totaled in the front end, bad enough that it needed fenders hood, core support and bumper, plus radiator and other stuff.

i bought it a few month ago and drove it for a semester of school. the car still drives straight, and like i said im fixing it now, i just need to pull out the pillar, replace the rocker, and get a door.

yup still very drivable, im going to temporarily wedge the door back on and drive it, until i can afford a new door. i had compreshive on my car, and glass coverage, because i thought it would help pay for stuff like this, i was told i was at fault, so i dropped comp and glass coverage!

Ouch!!! That is no walk in the park repair. You need access to a Chief Easyliner with a quad clamps and a couple of hydraulic rams. You will find damage clear to the center of the car and from from each wheel well opening. Its like the strongest part of car to smash and cutting into without pulling it straight first is like the worst idea. You really need to rethink your plan as that car is not going to safe to drive when done.

With quad clamps you grab the drip rail in 4 places under the car. Clamp up the edges of the smashed area and use hydraulic force to pull it out. There several clamps needed and welding to be done. The metal is zinc plated and its High strength, low alloy steel. Heating it softens it and it cracks. That's a serious hit, not to be taken lightly.

I used to run one of these for 5 years correcting the "uncorrectable", from DD, to 4X4s, Winston Cup Nascar, exotic sports cars. Get someone with the right equipment to make a couple pulls before you ever try and hack in a part. Its the smart thing to do!

Google image some of this: you'll see what the proper clamping system can do. FWIW: it was at least 6000 lbs of force to create that damage. You can bet it will be at least that much to pull it back out!
